In order to reach Chulu West Peak Climbing, one must take a detour from the main trail to the Thorung La pass. After crossing the village of Manang, base camp can be established within the small valley in the north. Following the base camp, the path is encountered with a smaller North-West ridge that will lead to the main peak. Any attempt at climbing the peak from the base camp can be performed in a single day since the terrain is not favorable for any camping as the slope to the peaks is very slanting.
